NYX is considered to be one of the best drugstore brands in the USA and now, it has spread its wings in other countries. One of it is India. The products from this brand are effective and affordable which makes these products a must-have in every girl’s kitty. Almost every girl has at least few of these products with them. Today I will be reviewing one of my favorite products from NYX, is NYX Butter Lip Balm Red Velvet is.

Basic information about NYX Butter Lip Balm Red Velvet

Who doesn’t like red lipsticks? And what if I say you can get those perfect red lips without using lipstick? Even better, what if I say you can get the perfect red lips using a butter lip balm? Doesn’t it sound exciting? yes. It does. NYX has a wide range of shades in the butter lip balm which is meant to suit any and every skin tone which is a very big thing. They have around 8 to 9 shades in this butter lip balm and I own around 6 of them (don’t worry; I will review all of those!!).  Read on to know how the product fared to me and what are the lasting power and much more.

My experience with NYX Butter Lip Balm Red Velvet


It comes in the usual twist type of tube with a cap over it. The body of the container resembles the color of the butter lip balm which makes it easy to distinguish between different colors.


It doesn’t have any distinct fragrance


As all of you might already know, I have reviewed the butter lip balm in shades parfait and brownie earlier, and I had become a huge fan of their collection and I somehow wanted to get my hands on these. These butter lip balms are light on the lips and don’t show out your lip lines distinctly and make the lips look fuller and scrumptious. They stay for a good 3 to 5 hours depending on the usage. If you eat and drink, it might not stay as long but the one biggest advantage is that it keeps the lips moisturized the whole time and even after the lip balm is gone. It is also true that it contains a lot of chemicals but it is not required to smack your lips and make the chemicals go inside your body. The color doesn’t bleed which is another big advantage. One tip that I want to give here, in case you want to buy this, please buy either from their official website or from sellers who are genuine, since there are many first fake copies out there which might actually do more harm than good. Also, it is not at all required to use a lip liner since this will cover your lips and automatically make them look fuller and help you get that perfect pout for photos. So girls, if you are in search of tinted butter lip balms, your search ends here.
